Shared Room Inspiration Board

In case you didn’t know, I’m the oldest of four (actually, almost five) siblings. My mom is expecting a baby girl this fall, and we’re all really excited! 

Because “baby sister” (as we’re calling her right now – we haven’t picked a name yet) will be sharing a room with me and Emily (who is two), we’re going to need to figure out how to fit another bed+ more storage into our room. Here are some of my ideas!

Bunk Bed w/ Trundle

We’ll probably need to get a bunk bed anyway, but a trundle would be cute + a future bed for “baby sister” if necessary. The ones with drawers are adorable too! Another thing I love is that you can separate them into two beds, which would be great someday 🙂

Storage Cubes

I’m thinking about getting some of these for the closet (right now the closet is pretty crazy) and adding some cute baskets. Image result for boho color scheme

Colors

I love these colors because they’re bright and fun, but I might add some light pinks as well.

Cactus/Cacti

Cacti (that word is SO weird)  are so cute and I’d love to incorporate them somehow… maybe sheets like in the picture above? I’m not sure!

Do you share a room with a sibling (or two!)? Do you have any ideas for me?

Our Florida Winter: Photoshoot

letter-h-hello-animation

How has your week been? Mine has been good, but busy with school. I can’t wait for Christmas/New Year’s break! Do y’all like the Christmas “redesign” of the blog? It’s not as good as the regular one, because Mukta designed that one, but I like it. It’s fun to change things up! 

Anyway, today’s post is “winter” photography. If you could call it that… I’m a Florida gal, so our winter is basically the same as summer (except we kinda freak out at 65 degrees “It’s so cold! It’s going to snow!”- and yes, that is a real conversation). Plus the majority of these photos are of my cutesy little sis Em. Hey, I won’t complain if you won’t!

#sorrynotsorry

I decided to split the post into two categories: nature/outside and Emily/sibs (my siblings). So…. let’s get started!

I don’t really know why I took this photo (maybe it was a lighting test) but I actually kinda like how it came out. The quality isn’t great, but I like the different elements. The stones are so pretty, and I love the layering of the steps and the plant.

img_3385

This picture is weird… I like the detail of the cherry tree’s trunk, but the angle is really crazy… what do you think?

img_3337

There were a couple of tiny flowers by our sidewalk, so I tried to take a picture of them. Believe me, it’s harder than it looks! I was literally lying on the ground hoping that none of our neighbors were watching me… the things we do to get a picture!

img_3297

THIS PICTURE IS SO PRETTY. I literally have no idea why I like it so much… but I love the pine cone.  Plus we have some bokeh in the back… yaaaaaassssss!

img_3295

I can’t decide which I like better- the pine cone in focus or out of focus. In this picture, I really like how sharp and clean the grass is, plus I like the bokeh.

img_3298

BEHIND THE SCENES/// I moved the grass so I could focus on the pinecone… it was way harder than I thought! Steadying the camera was MUCH harder with only one hand…. plus I was lying on the ground.

img_3294

I don’t love this picture, but I wanted to show y’all how huge our cherry tree is. It might not be super big, but we planted this thing from when it was TINY. It was about the size of a marigold, I kid you not. It’s so huge now! We planted it at the end of February in 2017, so we haven’t even had it for two years.

img_3293

The light was so pretty coming from the top of the tree, so I had to take a picture!img_3318

I love the way the light is coming in through the leaves! This picture is so pretty 🙂

Now for the part of the post that you OBVIOUSLY came for… my cutsie patootsie sister Em plus my brothers! Plus an overload of camera mirror selfies (that sounds weird) of me!

C: Make me a cool rapping singer. Here I’ll sing for you “BOOM BOOM BOOM I’M A RAPPER”  I obliged. 

img_3371

C: Take a picture of my eye… with sunglasses on! 

Okaaaayyyy?

img_3372

Em’s face the entire time that C was posing “as a cool rapper”

color_pop

I don’t normally like color contrast like this, but this is adorable! I love her expression… J was posing for me like this, and she decided to copy him.

img_3355

OH MY GOODNESS I’M FRAMING THIS… How cute, though? I love it. 

img_3354

Wouldn’t you love to knock on a door and have this cutie answer? How adorable! 

BTS (behind the scenes): She was actually trying to slam the door on me while I was taking them. She was literally saying “Out, Tina! Out, Tina! Chris-tin-a, get out!”. 

img_3329

If you look past the blurriness, she’s adorable! 

img_3346

“And what are you doing here, my good friend?’ (not what she was actually saying lol)

img_3342

I tried to capture pictures of her running… and failed.

img_3290

I told her “Pose for me”  and “be a model” (she doesn’t know what a model is lol) and this is what she gave me. 

img_3275

I love her messy face… She looks so deep in thought.

img_3272

She was mad at me when I wouldn’t let her “see it, see it, see picture”… I haven’t taken the picture yet!

img_3259

But when you tell her to smile for the camera… CUTENESS ALERT! I love this picture!

img_3257

Need I say more?

img_3340

She found this random green ribbon… and she loved it!

img_3378

Selfie of me! Probably not the best part of my fave to take a picture of… hello acne + freckles 😦 

img_3387

I have no idea what he was doing…

 

img_3388

They have ganged up against me! I took both these pictures within 10 seconds of each other…

 

 

MIRROR SELFIES

These were so fun to take! I might make one my profile picture!

Sorry for the long post… I hope you enjoyed! Let me know what picture was your favorite!

SMORES!! It was SO hard to get a good picture of these. I had around 20 that I deleted, and even this one isn’t great.

IMG_1091

My sleepy sister- XD!

She loves the little tie- so sweet.

IMG_1094

She decided to pose for me 🙂

Quick update

Hi everyone!

I am on a sort of vacation right now, so here are some updates!

My grandfather had a collapsed lung, so me, my mom, and sister came up to visit them and help them out. Please pray for them! He is an elder at his church and a devout Christian. We’re so thankful to all the people at our church who took care of my brothers throughout the week. Thanks, guys!

I don’t know how much longer I will be up here, but I’m still with them. My mom and sister had to head back home, though.

They are avid photographers, so I’m using their cameras to take photos every day. I will try to post a sort of trip diary for the times that I am there (I have some awesome pictures already!)

 

Just wanted to let you guys know what’s going on. I am not going to be sending out the mailing list while I am gone, so sorry!
